Description: Everything we do in the kitchen, from using subtle textures and flavours, to seeking out the freshest local produce has the same objective: to stimulate the palate and delight the senses. Our menu which is inspired by authentic Mediterranean and Thai flavours creates a fusion of tradition and innovation, uniting yesterday and tomorrow. Our aim is to transform classic Mediterranean dishes through the use of bold, Asian inflected seasonings and unexpected flavor combinations to draw the basic essence and nuanced flavours of quality ingredients to the fore and allow them to truly shine.

“Great value, great food”
Reviewed November 26, 2013

It is easy to miss this place on a busy road in Cherngthalay, Phuket. But it is worth seeking out.

The restaurant really is no frills and kind of rustic. However, the wide variety of food is excellent and great value for money. I was pleasantly surprised at the quality of the Western food as many Thai restaurants just can't do it.

There are only two people serving so you may have to wait a while if is is busy. Overall the waiters do an excellent job. Just one word of friendly advice to them with all the running around you do......Deodorant!

“Amazing price for the food”
Reviewed November 17, 2013

The lobster was so delicious, we came back 4 nights in a row. What say more? We are french and appreciate good cuisine, and pesto definitely was very, very good. We cannot understand how cheap it is, but better for the customer. Just go.

“Pesto restaurant Moo 1”
Reviewed October 17, 2013

This really is a gem of a place. No frills but the food is divine, very well presented. The choice is Thai or Western with a twist. The service is good always with a smile. You can bring your own wine no issue. Desert is limited but the chocolate pot is really worth trying.
The restaurant does get very busy high season.
Really one worth trying.

“EXCELLENT VALUE FOR MONEY”
Reviewed October 15, 2013

This unassuming little restaurant serves some of the best Thai food in Phuket and at amazingly low prices. I particularly recommend the whole fish dishes and the fabulous chocolate desert.

“A great no frills local Restaurant”
Reviewed October 8, 2013

This restaurant was opened by Thai chefs that had works in four star hotel restaurants and it is reflected in the quality and taste of the food. It is inexpensive They serve both Thai and western food and do both well. The portions are not large but the prices are so low that you could order as many dishes and still leave only having paid a fraction of what it would cost you in a fancy restaurant with white tablecloths and the food would have been just as good if not better
